Big money was raised by small trains in Dunedin on the
Dunedin Model Railway Club president Noel Wilson said the
two-day model train show had nine exhibits. Miniature train
enthusiasts had come from as far away as Christchurch.
The exhibits transfixed children as the trains whistled and
hissed around the tracks at Bayfield High School.
Last year, the club raised $10,000 for a hospital bed for the
oncology department at Dunedin Hospital and it was hoped this
weekend's event would raise the same amount for the
department, Mr Wilson said.
The amount raised this year would not be known until Tuesday,
